NEMI Course: 2024 Dutch CryoEM school

Dear community,

We are happy to announce the second iteration of the Dutch cryoEM school scheduled to take place from 03 – 08 June 2024 in Leiden and Delft.

The aim of this school is to teach the basic principles and practical aspects of electron microscopy and image processing to structural and molecular biologists wishing to determine macromolecular structures by cryoEM. The course will cover all aspects of cryoEM structure determination, ranging from sample preparation over data collection to processing and interpretation of high-resolution volume data, for both single particle images and tomograms, and will be aimed at PhD students and postdocs using cryoEM for structural analysis. The applicants should ideally have some basic knowledge of the cryoEM workflow to profit most from the course.

Invited speakers and tutors are:

Sjors Scheres (MRC-LMB)
Wim Hagen (Thermo Fisher Scientific)
Emanuel Katzmann (JEOL)
Friedrich Förster (Utrecht)
Stuart Howes (Utrecht)
Tom Burnley (CCP-EM)
Bogdan Toader (MRC-LMB)
Colin Palmer (STFC-UKRI)
Agnel Joseph (CCP-EM)
Matt Idanza (STFC-UKRI)

The school will be limited to 20 participants. The deadline for application is 22 March 2024 and we will inform selected participants approximately 1-2 weeks after the deadline.

Thanks to generous sponsoring, registration is free of charge for participants from academia. Transportation to and from the venues, and accommodation, are not included in the school and need to be arranged by the selected participants themselves.

A detailed program and instructions for registration can be found here:

With best wishes from the organisers,
